Watch: 56-year-old woman clad in saree does weight training in gym

Screengrab from the video

A video that has gone viral shows a 56-year-old woman clad in a saree exercising in a gym along with her daughter-in-law to keep fit. She is lifting weights and doing squats as part of the physical workout.

The video has captured this complete break from stereotypes in a social milieu where only youngsters or men visit a gym.

The trainers of the gym are seen honouring the woman in what appears to be an event to promote greater participation of older women in fitness programmes.
